ASTLEY HALL. The Redcoats Are Coming.

By the magic of my time travelling blog let me whisk you back to 2018. Its a little disconcerting to walk around a quiet corner and be met by a round of musket fire from a group of Redcoats.

SANKEY VALLEY. Blackbrook To Earlestown.

Taking a walk along a canal is to take a walk through history. Nearby to me is the Sankey Canal and much of it’s course is now the Sankey Valley Country Park.

CHORLEY. Flat Iron Market Day.

Slowly catching up with 2020, think I’m nearly there. As usual my Christmas was being sorted on the hoof as the last few days of the year and the decade tumbled past. Luckily I only needed a few bits and pieces so I headed over to Chorley knowing that I would be certain of a good chance of getting what I was looking for. Plus it was a Tuesday which […]
